Kabul – April 26, 2018: A group of Hambastagi members and supporters condemned the doomsdays of 8th and 7th Suar (28th and 27th April) and their bloodied consequences during a protest gathering. It had been planned to condemn these days through a protest rally in one of the war-torn areas of Kabul city such as Asamee Avenue or Old City, but due to government restrictions, we were forced to hold the gathering in a park.
The protestors were holding placards with pictures of destructions and victims of last four decades, especially of 8th Saur. The texts on placards read: 8th and 7th Saur: the two national mourning days! Our people should prosecute the criminals of 8th and 7th Saur! Without prosecution of 8th and 7th Saur’s criminals, Afghanistan will never reach to peace and prosperity!
Selay Ghaffar, Spokesperson of Hambastagi, said:
“The 8th and 7th Saur and the two ominous and calamitous days in the bloodied history of our homeland, which is tight to crime and destruction and it will be never forgotten. It is more painful to see that today the same criminals are ruling our people, and are busy continuing in another round of oppression and looting under the banner of US and its allies. The US government knows it very well that these criminals in exchange for some dollars, they are ready give everything.”
Besides expressing condolences, on behalf of Hambastagi, to the victim’s families of the recent suicide bombing on polling center, she added:
“Untill and unless our people don’t start an all-out insurrection and uprising against the national traitors and their foreign masters, even if the election is held or not, the same traitor-to-country oppressors, warlords, drug lords and bunch of their boot-licking pen-men, sitting on the fingers of the occupiers, will continue to rule our people. The ironic election of 2014 changed nothing in favor of our nation. It only provided more ground to the Taliban and Daesh assassins to regularly kill our people in groups. I express our condolences to the victims’ families of the recent attack in Dasht-e-Barchi. My compatriots! Look, how shameless they are. Yesterday, they made poor people wait in long queues for many days to get an ID card, but now when they need these ID cards to get the votes of people, they have established the centers in everywhere.”
The Theater Group of Hambastagi had made the effigies of war criminals with chained hands to symbolically prosecute them.
